GHOST HUNT AT HACK GREEN NUCLEAR BUNKER,
AS SEEN ON LIVING TV'S 'MOST HAUNTED'
History of Hack Green Nuclear Bunker
This amazing location started life as a bombing decoy site during WWII to confuse German bombers looking for the nearby railway junction at Crewe, and then became RAF Hack Green in 1941 to protect the land between Liverpool and Birmingham. During the 1950s the site was modernised as part of the ROTOR project (an elaborate radar system designed to counter possible attack by Soviet bombers during the Cold War). This involved the construction of a semi-sunk bunker and installation of new long-range radar equipment with which to protect the UK from the perceived threat from the Soviet Union.
During this time, Hack Green had a complement of 18 officers, 26 NCOs and 224 corporals and aircraftsmen, making it a very busy site. Then, in 1958 it changed roles again, becoming part of the United Kingdom Air Traffic Control System. It was while fulfilling this role that it became an RAF centre, finally closing in 1966 when its function was transferred to RAF Lindholme in South Yorkshire.
However, Hack Green's story does not end there. After lying empty and disused for some years until 1976 - the height of the cold war - when it was purchased from the MOD by Home Office Emergency Planning Division and converted into a vast underground complex which would serve as a protected seat of government for the region. With sixteen other sites located throughout the UK, the hope was that some semblance of order could be retained in the aftermath of a nuclear attack and the machines of government could survive. In fact, another of our venues, Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker, was one of Hack Green's sister sites. The latter contained its own generating plant, air conditioning and life support, nuclear fallout filter rooms, communications, emergency water supply and all of the support services that would be required to enable the 135 civil servants and military personnel to survive a sustained nuclear attack.
With the end of the cold war came the end of Hack Green's life as a working facility. In 1992 it was sold to a private buyer who set about turning it into a Cold War museum which opened in 1998, and so it remains today. As well as various interesting displays and artefacts, Hack Green also houses a vast collection of decommissioned nuclear weapons. Amazingly, if all of these were armed, the base would be the 7th biggest nuclear power in the world!
Ghosts of Hack Green Nuclear Bunker
Since opening as a museum, countless visitors and members of staff have reported strange goings on its network of rooms and corridors. As a result, it has become a Mecca for paranormal investigators and featured twice on Living TV's 'Most Haunted', first on 'Midsummer Murders' and then in the main series. Eerie Evenings ran a private event there in 2011 and got such amazing results that we decided to open it up to the public.
Full apparitions seen over the years include that of a uniformed gentleman, presumably an officer of some kind, walking up and down the main corridor. Two other figures have also been seen in this area and according to members of staff, the atmosphere in the corridor can sometimes give seem almost menacing; several visitors have even fainted, apparently as a result.
Room 9, a telecommunications area, is another paranormal hotspot. Witnesses have seen an attractive lady working at one of the desks and several groups have made contact with an aggressive male spirit. During our private event, one of the old rotary-style telephones started ringing. This should have been impossible as it wasn't connected to anything, yet it was witnessed and verified by the entire group.
The theatre (of the arts variety, rather than the medical) is considered by many to be the scariest area in the entire bunker due to its sinister atmosphere and the level of activity which occurs in it. People have been touched, pushed and shoved by unseen hands and many have heard bangs and moans emanating from the area while it is completely empty. Several members of the public have fallen ill in this room during the day, with an ambulance even being called on one occasion. Mediums put the activity in here down to a particularly ill-meaning and angry spirit.
The above is just a tiny selection of the stories and tales which you will hear on the night during a walkabout with a member of the museum staff. We believe that Hack Green Nuclear Bunker offers one of the most unique ghost-hunting opportunities out there and we are delighted to have exclusive access until the early hours. Although as you will experience for yourself, once you are in the maze of underground rooms and corridors, day and night cease to matter.
